Patty & Emily discuss all the shows closing this week, as the January slaughter begins, and Patty’s viewing of Nunsense. Most of the discussion is this week’s biggest story: Tonya Pinkins’s exit from CSC’s production of Mother Courage. They also talk about the excellent casting news of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and The Secret Garden and updates on the Hudson Theatre. They have some questions for their British listeners.
Patty & Emily talk about the opening of Fool for Love, James Earl Jones’s and Cicely Tyson’s views on entrance applause, and a bunch of casting, including The Color Purple, The Secret Garden, and Gigantic. They also have a very special Carolee Update.
